Thanks sean! now that i read it, it sounds very much like a clean up job rather than a clone job? Let me see if i got the steps right...

i will use windows 7 backup program first, save the iso to my blank m4 ssd
then run the system restore.
this will "restore" (aka clone) the image to my m4 ssd whilst leaving my existing windows 7 untouched?
i will have 2 windows 7 partition now?
then i will go to bios and select m4 ssd as boot drive?

why would the M4 have 2 partitions?
Yes

Once booted into Windows on the M4 you can simply delete the partitions on the Intel drive in disk management and make sure you delete the System reserve partition of the Intel drive too. Then quick format it. smile.gif

sorry sean i mean i will have 2 existing win7 partition after the job done? one in the m4 and one in the intel ssd after this process? and i can select and use back the win7 partition of my current intel ssd just in case the clone fail on the m4?

normally i would try and error on such process but the thought of reinstalling my win7 in case something go wrong is counterproductive to what i want to achieve with cloning transfer! redface.gif

Yep, you will have a the exact same information on both drives at the same time, that is why i say you delete everything on the Intel drive when you are done so you can use it for other things.

For anyone with a 64GB M4, how many programs have you managed to install on it?
I'm just wondering whether 64GB will be enough to fit a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit installation, Office 2010 (approximately 3GB), the Adobe Master Collection CS5.5 (about 24.4GB) and general programs such as Google Chrome and anti virus.

I actually have almost all that software and a lot more and I have 30GB free on my 64GB M4. smile.gif

Edit: You should have ~20GB left over with all of CS5.5. I only have ~ half of the suite installed.

Thanks, that's great news. Do these programs benefit from being put on a SSD?

yep. especially fluidity and snappiness withing the program, at least in my use. Plus when you click the icon the Adobe programs load within ~3-5 seconds vs like 15-20 lol. MS office is all instant as soon as the icon is pressed it is opened. Same for google chrome, and virus protection scans in a matter of a few minutes vs say an hour or so. XD
